Girija Vaidyanathan appointed new Chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu
22 December 2016 Current Affairs: The Additional Chief Secretary and Commissioner of Land Administration, Girija Vaidyanathan has been appointed as the new Chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu state, replacing P Rama Mohana Rao.

The announcement was made through an official statement by the government of Tamil Nadu. Along with being the Chief Secretary, Girija will also hold the position of Vigilance Commissioner and Commissioner for Administrative Reforms.

This appointment follows the shocking removal of P Rama Mohana Rao from the top post. Rao was sacked a day after an Income Tax raid seized hidden cash and gold from his residence and other properties in Chennai on 21 December 2016.

A total of Rs 30 lakh cash in the new currency and 5 kg of gold was recovered during the raid, following which opposition parties started demanding for his removal.

Girija Vaidyanathan : She is an officer of the 1981 batch of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) with a postgraduate degree in physics. 

She has been serving as the Commissioner of Land Administration since the year 2013 and was actively involved in the formation of rules for the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act of 2013.  

She has previously also held the position of Health Secretary of the state for one year in 2011 under the AIADMK government. 

She played a significant role in the launch of the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme. 

Other positions that she has held include School Education Secretary from 2005 to 2006 and Member of the State Planning Commission between the years 2007 and 2008. She still has around two and half years before taking up retirement.

Though there are reports suggesting that Rao would be facing suspension from service, no official decision on the same has been announced.
